Abstract : This appendix presents the results of studies completed by the Coastal Zone Subcommittee of the International Lake Erie Regulation Study Board, which was established by the International Joint Commission in May 1977. The purpose of the studies was to determine the economic effects of changes in levels and flows on the coastal zone. The methodologies used for evaluating alternative regulation plans for flood and erosion damage indicate by lake, interest and country, the amount and distribution of benefits or losses. Results of the evaluation of selected regulation plans are presented. During the coastal zone evaluations a number of assumptions were necessary regarding physical processes, future levels and socio-economic conditions. Sensitivity analyses were conducted to evaluate the effect of altering some of these assumptions. Descriptions of these assumptions and the sensitivity analyses are contained in this appendix.
